Hey Erv and others, I have a new problem with my recently purchased CFX v10 soundboard. I soldered wires for the battery, speaker and MOM ACT & AUX switches to bench test before I install anything in the hilt. When I plug in the battery, it boots up and I get the red light that goes out after the booting sequence like it should. I press the ACT and it powers on with sound. When I tap the AUX, I get blaster. When I hold the AUX, I get lockup. But, after around 15 seconds, I get the power off sound without touching any switches. Then in a few seconds, it powers on and immediately powers off and continually does that until I unplug the battery. Sometimes I will get the "Sound bank selection" prompt and "Deep sleep activated". Neither switches will work until I unplug and replug the battery, but it does the same thing. And I've tried this several times. My solder joints and wiring looks good with no wire or solder on any pads next to them. I removed all wires and examined and all looks fine on the pads, top and bottom. And I use my ESD Safe soldering station as I've used on all mt eight sabers.
Other things I've tried....
Different 18650 battery packs,
Different MOM switches I had on hand,
Three different SIM Cards from other sabers including the one that came with the board,
New wire and no cold solder joints,
Never went above 550* on my iron and I use 60/40 that has a lower melting point than lead-free solder.
I received the board from TCSS around a week or so ago. Could there be a bad component in the board? The only thing I can think of. I've switched everything external to the board to make sure it wasn't what I soldered on.
Any help is appreciated!
